Texas police officer fatally shoots woman who allegedly tried to grab his taser
A shocking and violent video showing a suburban Houston police officer fatally shooting a Black woman who yelled "I'm pregnant" right before he fired at her in an attempt to arrest her for outstanding warrants. However, police say as the officer tased the woman, she then gained control of his taser and tried to fire it at the officer.
The shooting was caught on camera on Monday night in the Texan town of Baytown after officers attempted to arrest the 44-year-old over outstanding warrants.
Police say that's when a struggle ensued, forcing the officer to deploy his department issued taser at the woman.
In the video, which is circulating on social media, Turner could be heard saying "You're actually harassing me" and "I'm actually walking to my house" before falling to the ground.
Video of the fatal encounter was posted to social media and raised questions as to what caused the officer to shoot and kill the woman.
The officer's name has not been released, but Baytown police said he is an 11-year veteran of the department. Suddenly, the officer pulls away from Turner, steps back and fires five gunshots. Turner is heard yelling "I'm pregnant" as she struggles on the ground as the officers continue to wrestle her standing above her.
"It's just sad - very sad - when you see somebody for the past six months walking around", Jennifer Sims said.
Witness video of the incident was widely circulated on social media overnight. According to The Associated Press, police said that they will determine whether she was pregnant during the autopsy.
Steve Dorris on Tuesday afternoon identified the woman as Pamela Turner and said his department has confirmed Turner was not pregnant.
The officer, who was not seriously injured, has been placed on paid administrative leave. That is when an unidentified Baytown officer recognized her from prior encounters. "We would often see her, see her walk her dog around", local resident Raquelle Cuellar told ABC 13.
The Harris County District Attorney's Office are assisting with the investigation.
Baytown police said the officer tried to give first aid to the woman, but she was pronounced dead at the scene. It's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved. "Of course, our hearts go out to the families of the deceased as well as our officer".
